Founder, Dragonfly Team and Leadership Development
Growing up in Wenatchee, I am blessed to be surrounded by natural outdoor beauty, and double-blessed to be part of a community of people who really inspire me. That’s why it is such a privilege to offer support and development services to the leaders and teams that make Central Washington so great. I have always found profound joy in helping people grow, which is why I spent 17 years working as a mental health therapist. When I co-founded The Dragonfly Retreat eating recovery program, my eyes were opened to the power of the shared group learning experience. Combining this background with my doctorate in business administration has shown me how individual and group psychology can merge with organizational operations to create an alchemy of transformation for leaders, teams, and businesses. In 2021, I founded Dragonfly Team and Leadership Development, where I continue to discover new horizons of helping people lead happy, work happy, and summit their professional lives.

Born here in Wenatchee and raised in these mountains, I feel part of this area and this community, as it has shaped every part of me. I have spent most of my professional life as a Physician and Physician Leader, here in the Wenatchee Valley. I was privileged to be Chief Medical Officer for the Wenatchee Valley Medical Center, then Confluence Health for the last 16 years. During my time in executive leadership, the power of teams and teamwork became the centerpiece of how great healthcare was delivered. I was able to witness and collaborate with teams firsthand when things were going well and when things fell apart. I was also called to coach, mentor and develop other leaders. These two facets of my role became passions for me. Years of experience and countless hours spent with colleagues, staff, and patients, gave me a great education. I also completed my Executive Coaching Certification at UC Berkeley and a Healthcare Leadership Certificate Program through Harvard Business School.
Since retiring from the executive team at Confluence Health, I have opened my own consulting and coaching practice, focused on guiding other leaders and leading teams towards a more fulfilling work life, and professional and personal growth. I have spent the past two years coaching and consulting with teams and their leaders in a variety of industries. Great teamwork and strong, insightful leadership are key to success. No matter what business you are in.
